Main show

The Kemptville Youth Musical Theatre Company’s (KYMTC) Main Show is usually performed in the spring (unless it is a holiday show). It offers youth from Grade 7 to age 19 the chance to audition for, and participate in, a musical theatre production staged at the Urbandale Arts Centre within the North Grenville Municipal Centre. Matilda is KYMTC’s 26th  musical theatre production.

show postponed until 2023

It is with deep regret that we’re announcing that we will not be able to stage our Main Show this year. Unfortunately, Ontario seems to be no closer to moving to the next level in reducing pandemic restrictions and, therefore, there is too much uncertainty for us to be able to move forward with the Matilda show at this time.

KYMTC is a not-for-profit, volunteer-run theatre, and we can’t afford to prepare to stage a show only to have the performances cancelled- again.

In addition, there are restrictions in place that don’t allow us to properly rehearse and prepare. This was an extremely difficult decision to make, but it’s in the best interest of KYMTC- and all of our cast, crew, and supporters.

We are hopeful that we will be back up and running next year.

Stay safe and healthy.

About The Show

Matilda is a little girl with astonishing wit, intelligence and psychokinetic powers. She’s unloved by her cruel parents, but impresses her schoolteacher, the highly loveable Miss Honey. Over the course of her first term at school, Matilda and Miss Honey have a profound effect on each other’s lives, as Miss Honey begins not only to recognize but also appreciate Matilda’s extraordinary personality. However, Matilda’s school life isn’t completely smooth sailing– the school’s mean headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, hates children and loves coming up with new punishments for those who don’t abide by her rules. But thanks to Matilda’s courage and cleverness she just may be the school’s saving grace!

Packed with high-energy dance numbers and catchy songs, children and adults alike will be thrilled and delighted by the story of the special little girl with an extraordinary imagination.
